Donate to Sow Joyful (a 501c3 non-profit program) here.
Sow Joyful is a garden and arts program for Black children, ages 5, 6 and 7, that offers lessons in gardening, chicken husbandry, art, performance and storytelling while being nurtured and held in a culturally-affirming environment that centers Black joy and connection. The program is located on two private acres in Pelham, MA, four minutes from Amherst Center.
At Sow Joyful, we play and learn in the garden, helping growing food or flowers together. We dance, tell stories, learn about bugs and crops, feed the chickens, run in the sprinklers when it gets hot, and build relationships that nurture the children and reflect the beauty and individuality of who they are.
Sow Joyful is inclusive of queer, trans, and non-binary families and kids.
